Recovering

Hello. It's Monday. Saturday I did the cancer walk. I had to get up very, very early. I don't mind doing this at all. As stated before, it's for my daughter. It's an emotional event. Seeing all the pink-shirted survivors is uplifting but knowing there are so many who aren't there to don their pink shirt is sobering. We all had a wonderful time and will be on board for next year.

On Sunday, I was once again up too damn early to take part in a "bridal expo" for Slumber Parties. I had to drive quite a distance and was there from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. All those happy soon-to-be married women were exhausting! One of the things that made me laugh is that the "brides" mothers were VERY interested in what we had to offer. With age comes wisdom, I assume.

The point of this post is that I am flat-out. I'm barely functioning with three cups of coffee. I've been tagged, twice, with meme's but cannot even get two brain cells to rub together. I hope to recover soon to dazzle y'all with my brilliant wit and exciting life.

I'm thinking about taking some Nyquil. It's not drug abuse if you just want it but don't really need it, is it?

Congratulations on doing the cancer walk, Nitebyrd !

I can see that part of it would be wonderful - and part very sad.

Taking Nyquil definitely will help you sleep - but if you aren't sick, would it make you feel funnny ?

I feel like that baby myself! I bunked off work today, was that exhausted from my weekend (naughty, I know!)

See, that's what I meant about the brain not working well. I was so exhausted that I went beyond the wall and couldn't sleep, hench the desire for Nyquil.

I did the walk for life in 2002 a year after my treatment.........I found it both very hard and very fulfilling although I injured my heela nd found walking painful for months it was still an acheivement and for a very good cause.

I did 10 miles the summer just passed, I raised over £600. I'd never done anything like it before, but then I had never had breast cancer before!!
Good to know we are surviving everyone of us lucky enough to be here and to be able to walk for others.

Congratulations on earning your exhaustion in such a healthy way...now step away from the Nyquil! Read an instruction manual or something equally dull, it will have the same affect...

Your health comes first, the blog comes way down the list! Well done with your walk!!

NyQuil - the sniffling, sneezing, stuffy head, why-the-hell-is-the-room-spinning medicine.
